Unable to locate manual to reprogram keyless entry pads

I recently bought a house and I am unable to locate the manual with instructions to reprogram the keyless entry pads on the exterior. I have a 3-car garage with 2 openers, and 2 keyless entry pads, both the same model.

I need to set/change the code on my Schlage lock but the sticker is completely unreadable.

I do not believe you will be able to reprogram the lock without the programming code, usually found on the sticker (unreadable, in your case).
Therefore, I urge you to call Schlage directly-they may be able to help you. here is the contact information:
United States Customer Support
Warranty & Technical Information: 1.888.805.9837

You are right about the support link going 404-It used to work. Get there by going
and clicking on "For your home"
Mouse over the "Service & Support" link, then go down & left click on "Instruction & Manuals". There ya go!

How do you reprogram the keyless door lock code?

  1. Enter the five digit permanent entry code into keyless entry keypad.
  2. Within five seconds of pressing last button of permanent code, press the 1/2 button within five seconds of pressing the last button of the permanent code. (Factory code found on the module).
  3. Enter any alternate five digit code within five seconds of pressing 1/2 button.
    • Enter a sixth digit as follows to indicate operator's memory seat setting to be set by alternate code: 9/0-- no memory recall
      1/2-- memory seat position 1
      314-- memory seat position 2
      5/6-- memory seat position 3
    • After successful programming, the doors will signal by locking and then unlocking.

The Keyless Entry Module is located inside the drivers side door.

I can't find the keyless entry code for my 2004 ford freestar

The code is on the fuse box under the dash near the hood release. On my van there are two bar codes on a sticker attached to the fuse box. Under the first bar code, on the right side is the 5 digit code (bring your glasses the numbers are really small). After you get this code, just search the internet and there are plenty of forums on programing the keyless remote and also adding your own unique number to the key pad entry.

Good Luck

Reprograming my exterior key pad???

Up under the dashboard to the left of the steering column is the anti-theft module. It is a square box about 4"X4" and should be tan in color. On the cover, there is a sticker with a 5 digit code. This is the keypad code.
